Monologues return to boost women’s charities
1:51pm Tuesday 5th March 2013 in Hyndburn
AN international play which has raised millions for women’s charities is returning to the Oswaldtwistle stage.
Once again the Civic Arts Centre is tackling the controversial but interesting Vagina Monologues.
Six members of the local community will be reading playwright Eve Ensler’s fascinating piece on International Women’s Day which this year falls on Friday.
Eve Ensler wrote the play to raise awareness of suffering in other countries and in the UK. Around this time every year she allows community groups to perform the piece and raise money for local charities.
The Civic Arts Centre will be donating profits to a women’s charity.
Gayle Knight, creative director at the centre, said: “The play itself is funny, moving and very thought provoking, but I understand that the title can be controversial or could put people off. Don’t let it, it’s something that every woman, and man for that matter, should see at least once in their life.” The performance starts at 7.30pm at the Union Road centre.
